Journey Beneath the Desert Directed by Giuseppe Masini, Edgar G. Ulmer, Frank Borzage

What are people saying?

  • Dale Wittig's rating of the film Journey Beneath the Desert

    Ulmer's penultimate movie credits him with decors, screenplay and direction, but one can see how he intended it for Borzage to direct. Reports conflict as to whether or not Masini was ever on set and when Borzage stopped, but it's all fairly cohesive and often very pleasurable. Rad Fulton makes a revolutionary object of Antinea's adoration, Trinignant a sensitive comrade and Amadeo Nazzari a formidable Atlantean.
